A great route for sure, but I never understood why Hackworth made such a big deal about it. There are better climbs around, but then again, it is long, clean, well protected... and well, then again, maybe it is a classic at the grade.
Climb a set of cracks to a ledge and shove yourself into a brief squeeze before riding the final crack to some anchors.
From the main approach to Sky Bridge head left past some boulders and rubble around a corner with a thin sport climb ("Soul Ram") and onto a set of cracks with a mossy section of rock near the ground between them. The left-leaning one on the right is Good Times. There is an odd-looking inset flake below a small roof that helps identify the route from the ground. The thin crack and flake system to the left with a few bolts is "The Rifleman."
A standard trad rack to fist-sized, with a few longer slings.
Kris chimneying up to notorious crux.

Nice to have (but not required) some small gear such as nuts or micro cams to protect the final move to the chains. Thought I would need doubles in #2s but only ended up needing one.
